Ice Vision makes it possible to significantly extend the possibilities of ship’s navigation and plotting of optimum routes when sailing in harsh ice conditions and restricted conditions of rocky islets and fiords due to enhanced quality, definition, and resolution of radar image (RMRS Type Approval Certificate).
The device is designed for high-quality visualization of ice conditions in radar coverage areas installed on a ship, shore, drilling platform, and other objects.
The device is connected to radar and provides displaying of an image on a monitor in real-time mode and creating a records archive. Ice conditions can be easily decrypted by a master that allows identifying the parameters of small gaps and broken channels to define an optimum route by recommendations from the center for scientific and operational support of ice navigation (typical connection diagram is given in figure 1).
Multilevel processing of radar image ensures:
- Enhancement of contrast;
- Improvement of radar image quality, definition, and resolution;
- Identification of moving objects among fixed ones;
- Increase of the range of small objects detection.
